Following Wallows’ remotely produced and aptly named EP, Remote (Deluxe), fans have been anxiously awaiting the return of the LA-based band.
Seven months later, the trio is back together for their latest single “I Don’t Want to Talk,” produced by Ariel Rechtshaid (Vampire Weekend, Haim, Adele).
The first of a series of collaborations with Rechtshaid, the track carries the same alt/indie 80s inspired sound that the band is known for.
The lyrics dive into the ways we cope with the possibility of losing someone. Lead vocalist Dylan Minnette explained, “’I Don’t Want to Talk’ is ultimately a song about insecurities. Not only in yourself, but in this case, particularly in a relationship. It centers around the fear of being away from someone for too long and that ultimately allowing the other person’s head to be turned by someone else, and instead of expressing those fears, completely shutting down and not wanting to talk about it at all.”
The sentiment is symbolically represented in the cinematic music video directed by Jason Lester.
The video starring Minnette, Braeden Lemasters, and Cole Preston takes viewers through a movie-worthy montage complete with quick zooms, broken mirrors, and confetti.
